During the telecast, Matt Le Blanc opened up about an embarrassing drunk story that ended up landing him the role of Joey Tribbiani, one of the most loved characters from F.R.I.E.N.D.S. The role was a favorite not only among the audience but also the creators of the show Marta Kaufmann and David Crane.
Le Blanc narrated the incident that happened back in 1994. He recalled how while he was preparing for the callback and running lines with his friends the night before, his friend suggested, “So, the show’s about a group of friends? Then we should go out drinking.”
Matt gave in to the temptation and went out and about the city club-hopping and downing a little too many drinks. The next thing he knew was that he, “woke up in the middle of the night in his apartment.”

Le Blanc further narrated, “I got up too fast and – I can’t believe I’m telling you this – I kind of blacked out, as you do, and fell face first into the toilet. I hit my nose on the bottom of the toilet seat and a huge chunk of meat came off my nose. I’m looking in the mirror and it’s bleeding.”
When the actor reached the callback the very next day, he had a huge scar on his face. A concerned Kaufmann asked: “What happened to your face?”
The Man With a Plan actor then came clean about the incident that took place last night. He shared, “I told the truth and got the job.”
Matt Le Blanc took a break from acting after F.R.I.E.N.D.S and his spin-off series Joey concluded. He then made a comeback in 2020 with the show Man With a Plan, post which he announced he was taking a break again.
